Minolta MD 50mm f/1:2 Lens
Condition Note: The Minolta MD 50mm lens is in excellent overall condition. Front and back lens caps are missing. It's bundled with an Optex 49mm lens filter.
The Minolta MD 50mm 1:2 is one of the smallest and most reasonable Minolta lenses and most importantly it is also an excellent lens for landscape photography.
The Minolta MD is one of the classic Minolta camera lenses for walk-around SLR film photography. Originally designed for Minolta manual SLR cameras, the 50 mm f/2.0 lens has a narrow focal plane that enables the photographer to get sharp detail on the central subject without distracting bright spots in a smooth out-of-focus background.
Focusing Ring: The focusing ring travels around 90 degrees from 45cm to 1m and a further 40 degrees to infinity.
Aperture: The aperture ring has full stops from f/2.0 to f/2.8 and f/16 to f/22 and half stops from f/2.8 to f/16. The lens has 6 straight aperture blades.
Hood: The front element is about 1cm recessed from the front of the lens so it is well protected from the sun and scratching.
